Extinction Rebellion has 3 demands:

  • “The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.
  • The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.
  • A national Citizens’ assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.”


Our Principles and Values

All are welcome who want to adhere to our principles and values

  1. “We have a shared vision of change – creating a world that is fit for generations to come.
  2. We set our mission on what is necessary – mobilising 3.5% of the population to achieve system change – using ideas such as “momentum-driven organising” to achieve this.
  3. We need a regenerative culture – creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.
  4. We openly challenge ourselves and this toxic system – leaving our comfort zones to take action for change.
  5. We value reflecting and learning – following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.
  6. We welcome everyone and every part of everyone – working actively to create safer and more accessible spaces.
  7. We actively mitigate for power – breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.
  8. We avoid blaming and shaming – we live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.
  9. We are a non-violent network – using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.
  10. We are based on autonomy and decentralisation – we collectively create the structures we need to challenge power. Anyone who follows these core principles and values can take action in the name of Extinction Rebellion.
